These ladies quilt once a week, and do a wonderful job. They are led by Jessica.. and her able bodied volunteers.
This is the *kit* bucket... they kit up fabrics so that there are enough Fat Quarters, or strips to make a quilt top.
They have a *How to* quilt hanging on the wall so you can see what to do!
Isn't that a great idea? I am such a visual person - I just loved this!!
These are some of the quilt tops they had ready for me to take - and to get to LongArm Quilters for Quilts of Valor.
This quilt (below) was made by Donna. It is her 9/11 Quilt. She started it the day after... and it is just gorgeous. In the flag - there is a piece of fabric for each person lost at the trade center.
Just magnificent. So much better in person.
I was so impressed with this group - after I talked about what Quilts of Valor is, and thanked them for all the tops that they create over the years , they put me to work!!! Can you believe it?
I ironed, I cut, I tore out the unworthy design elements ( tee hee), and i ironed some more. But mostly I listened to the stories, the things they were learning, and the desire to be of help to someone else. Jessica - your girls are awesome!! Thanks for inviting me!!
